How long to do I have to sue someone for a personal injury in Illinois?

Generally, two years from the date of the incident, one year if it’s against a municipality (city, town, village etc.).

I was injured by a car while riding my bike and the driver had insurance but not enough to cover all my medical bills. If she doesn’t have any assets, will I have to pay everything else myself?

Not necessarily. If you have comprehensive auto insurance, you may be able to recover from your own insurer through what is known as “underinsured motorist” coverage.
